April 2018 is set to be a winning month for all zodiac signs!

We are two weeks into Spring, and now it's already April. One-fourth of the year has passed us and although it's still young in the zodiac, astrologically speaking, with Aries the Springtime Ram leading the way we are finally starting to feel alive again. 

What do living people do besides breathing, eating, and sleeping? Well, they love. When a baby has his belly full, his comforts satisfied, his new comfort turns to love.

And as Venus moves into the zodiac sign of Taurus, we are no longer looking to start love, we want to cultivate its true meaning. Although we may not be sure where love will take us, the power of Venus in Taurus gives us an appreciation for all things love-like. 

Good food, great music, the smells and sights of Spring. Taurus loves the pleasures that love and life bring and it's not limited to the affections of human touch. If you are one of those romantics that love a great love story, you can use this Venus season to write one of your own. Think of what to do to enrich your life with activities and find like-minded people who love the same things you do. 

Here's what's happening in the universe that affects your monthly horoscope and zodiac sign and what this month's planetary changes are for April 2018:

(Note: These apply to everyone, however, if one of the planets is your planetary ruler it will have more of an effect on you.)

The Sun is in Aries:

When Venus makes her entry into Taurus, we all know that Mercury and the Sun are not too far behind. This means we are in the mid to late stages of the Sun in Aries. This is when the heat of Aries gets more ramped up. 

We can have more energy than before and start to feel like we are finally in our elements. it's a great time for exercise (Rams need lots of action), getting in the Sun (fire signs must have Vitamin D) and starting new projects takes on a specific meaning.  

Mercury is retrograde until April 15th at 5:20 am, EST:

Right now, Mercury Rx (retrograde) and it's time for us to think more than say whatever comes to our minds. This means taking the time to process our thoughts and ideas. Taking the time to slow it down, have conversations over freshly baked bread and in person. 

Savor the moment and use words that you will enjoy eating! Aries isn't always the softest deliverer of an important message. Blunt can be muted more now that Mercury is in retrograde. So, if you don't have something nice to say... say it, but try to say it with some sugar, too. :)

April 19th: The Sun enters Taurus

The Sun gets to buck down. What Aries lacks, Taurus now provides. Early in the season of Taurus, we may find that we receive ideas and understand which ones have sticking power and the ones that do not. Be more mindful regarding financial matters too. Although Taurus can be a saver, early in the month, there may be a tendency to want to spend more than usual on items of comfort as Taurus energy makes us want to build our comfort levels at home.

Venus is in Taurus on April 1st:

Taurus is in the 2nd House, the area where we sense what we have (and what we don't) what we want (and need) and we are willing to dig in and work for it. But, remember that Taurus is the maturation of Aries, the cardinal energy of fresh starts, and it's the manifestation of awareness that duality exists that can be found in the wisdom of Gemini. 

During this Mercury retrograde season, allow yourself to be picky when it comes to love and passion if you're just starting out at the onset of this week, and then slowly reacquaint yourself with all things beautiful including yourself.

No reason to rush into something unless it really, really means something to your heart mind spirit. This isn't limited to romance with people but extends to clothing choices, comforts, routines, food, music... there's nothing that Taurus loves more than sensual pleasures

April 15th: New Moon in Aries:

When we get a New Moon, the slate is wiped and we have a chance to clear the energy from Pisces and move to the love of new things. Aries energy now is completely communicated to the New Moon.

What do you need to push through these days? Don't be surprised if things start to change in a flash. This can happen with a New Moon in Aries period.

April 17th: Saturn turns retrograde in Capricorn until September 6th, 2018:

Finally a breather. When Saturn begs karma to help us to remember our duty to the universe, it's good to get a break from the push we feel. Now is a little respite and we can consider where we want to go next.

Who knows? Maybe some will have a tax return to use to help get a leg up at this time and buy things that are needed to start a new business, get a home repair, new wardrobe or take a family vacation. 

April 30th: Full Moon in Scorpio:

One thing about the Taurus zodiac sign is that he tends to be aloof about matters that do not pertain to his sense of outward appearances. Meanwhile, Scorpio, the opposing sign to Scorpio is the opposite. We will feel the tension between the physical things we have an want to keep and testing those feelings up against our inner motives.  

Jupiter is retrograde in Scorpio until July 10th:

When the planet of good fortune goes retrograde, it's not meant to imply bad luck but rewinding of things that aren't meant for you. You may find that paperwork comes back or deals get undone but when those things happen... remember what's not for you is not meant to be against you. Instead, give thanks for the blessing that's coming down the road. 

Here's a general overview of this month's energy for all zodiac signs in astrology:

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)


POWER CRYSTAL: Citrine or garnet

POWER DAYS: 4-6, 9-11, 14-16, 19-20, 23-24

Aries, this month, with Venus moving into Taurus, you may be feeling as though you're finally getting back into the groove of things and work tensions may lift (slightly) but not enough yet to feel as though you can let the ball drop and take a breather. (That will happen later in the year.).

It's still an upward climb in some respects and the tension of hard work, let's blame Mercury Rx for this one.  What you're trying to build could create internal conflicts and external ones with others at home only because there aren't more than 24 hours in a day.Not to worry, you will figure this one!

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)



POWER DAYS: 7-8, 12-13, 17-18, 21-22, 25-26

Taurus, you may feel a bit more comfortable in your skin and perhaps the slight lift in your sails is because Venus just entered the 2nd House, where she feels most like home. This could be the right time for you to focus on matters of the heart.

How are you doing in that area of life? Maybe you'll want to attend to things around the house to spruce things up a bit or you could notice little things about yourself that you'd like to improve not that you'll need much!

Mercury retrograde in Aries may still make it a bit difficult for you to express and the tension can mount, but there is still an opportunity to say what you need to say to the people you love without using words. Action is a love language, too.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)



POWER DAYS: 1, 9-11, 14-16, 19-20, 23-24, 27-28

Gemini, now that the Sun is midway through Aries you are feeling more action oriented and perhaps impulsive in the area of your health and wellness. But Mercury is in retrograde in Aries, and this may make you more sensitive to hearing anything negative these days when it comes to what you 'can't' do particularly by people who aren't bringing their own A-game to the conversation. (Focus on yourself, and keep doing you.)

With Venus moving into Taurus, you can start looking at how you manage things that are entrusted to you more an that have sentimental value, Are you a hoarder or a giver? You can be a mix of both but if there's a reason to add to your collection, indulge yourself. Venus is a planet that loves beauty and what's cooler than your own mini retro collection or making a fun display of all the digs you found while garage or thrift store shopping.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)



POWER DAYS: 2-3, 12-13, 17-18, 21-22, 25-26, 29-30

Cancer, with Mercury in retrograde in a fire sign, Aries, it's still important to be particularly mindful about saying things in a blunt fashion particularly with people in authority over areas that you manage at work. It's not that you will or have been doing this intentionally, but do use a sense of humor and take things with a grain of salt if you get rubbed in the wrong way. 

Now that Venus in Taurus, how you want to live your life and why can come into focus. Turn the spot life on memories that have been meaningful to you and helped you to see what you enjoy. Do you do these in excess?

Did you find something that makes the time fly? You could be on to something. Perhaps, you will enjoy writing about that subject and want to start a blog or maybe you would enjoy using that hobby to help alleviate some of the tension you feel and want to unwind.
